Hardberger Park Walk on July 29

Hardberger Park Walk on July 29

The Randolph Roadrunners walking club will feature their “Land Bridge – Hardberger Park” Year Round Event in San Antonio this coming Saturday, July 29th.

This walk is usually only accessible via the Online Start Box, but on Saturday club members will be at the walk start point to register walkers onsite.

They will be there from 7:00 AM to 9:00 AM to get walkers signed up, stamp books, and hand out directions. Walkers may choose between a 5km and 10km walk route.

Martin Callahan took the pictures in this post in March of this year on this same walk. The picture above shows a view of the Skywalk taken from the Land Bridge. The next picture was taken from the Skywalk, looking back at the Wurzbach Parkway tunnel under the Land Bridge.

You can learn more about Phil Hardberger Park here.

The walk start point and meeting place on Saturday will be in the Walmart Parking lot behind the Starbucks Coffee Company near Wurzbach Parkway.  The address for the Starbucks is 12711 Blanco Road, San Antonio, TX 78216.  It is in front of Walmart on the south side of Wurzbach Parkway.

Here are directions to get there from a couple of different roads:

  • Going west on Wurzbach Parkway, take the Blanco Road exit.  Turn LEFT at the light.  Starbucks is on the right in the first block.
  • Going north on Blanco Road from Loop 410 (Connally Loop), after passing Churchill HS on the left, Starbucks will be a couple of blocks north on the left in front of Walmart.
  • Going south on Blanco Rd from 1604, Starbucks will be on the right, just pass Wurzbach Parkway.

Also the AVA website listing of this YRE event has contact information and a detailed description of the walk. It’s an interesting walk with very nice scenery, and we hope you can attend!

Below are a few more pictures from the walk in March. First is Gayle W. walking on the Skywalk among the trees.

In the next picture, Gayle is admiring the view at an observation deck along the Skywalk trail as another walker approaches the deck.

In the last picture, Martin Callahan is seated, holding Rudy, inside one of the steel wildlife blinds decorated with images of plant life cut into the metal.

Thanks for sharing the pictures, Martin!
